The editorial board publishes an annual call for articles. There they set in more detail the deadlines and submission procedures for articles authors’ whish to publish by the end of given academic year (end of September). In addition, submissions are welcome at any time outside the given time period, however in such cases, the timeline will not be followed.
The manuscripts should be addressed to editorial board via e-mail.
Besides complete manuscripts, the authors are welcome to contact the editors with conceptualizations (considered title, the scope of research, abstract) or seek input on considered research design. However, the editorial board is unable to provide feedback on article drafts or judge the adequacy of drafts/articles for publication in advance.
We encourage the authors to consult the 6th edition of APA Handbook (or appropriate summaries online) before submission (or even before they start writing). All submissions that will not adhere to technical or formatting guidelines will be rejected after the initial screening by the editor-in-chief.
In Eksperimentatorju we publish articles written in Slovenian or English language. Scientific and professional papers should be written in an economic, intelligible, clear, and concise style. The authors are solely responsible for the language quality of the articles.
An empirical paper should report original research, presenting all the standard elements of scientific investigation: introduction, method (with subchapters participants, instruments, procedure), results, discussion, and references. For theoretical papers, it is expected to study in detail and critically analyse the given models or theory, while the empirical data is presented only if directly related to the theory. Before submitting other types of papers, we suggest the authors consult the editors.
All submitted manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the standards and recommendations described in the APA Publication Manual (6th edition). Please note that in some instances (especially for papers in Slovenian language) our guidelines might deviate slightly.
The articles written in English must contain an abstract in Slovenian language. If the authors are unable to provide a quality translation, they are encouraged to ask the editor for help.
All submissions that will not adhere to technical or formatting guidelines will be rejected after the initial screening by the editor-in-chief.
After the manuscript has been accepted for publication, the authors have to fill out and sign the Copyright Agreement. The signed agreement ensures that the publisher has the authors’ permission to publish the manuscript and represents an agreement between the authors and the publisher about sharing the copyright to the manuscript.
